Rasmussen scores 14, hits from long range as Seattle rolls to 75-48 win over Northern Illinois

Chad Rasmussen scored 14 points, including four 3-pointers, to help Seattle to a 75-48 win over Northern Illinois on Wednesday night.

Prince Obasi added 13 points and three 3s of his own, plus eight rebounds and six assists, for the Redhawks (4-5), and Deshaun Sunderhaus chipped in 10 points.

Antone Christian scored 11 off the bench for the Huskies (2-8), who dropped to 0-6 on the road this season. NIU shot just 29 percent from the field, and Christian's three field goals were more than any of his teammates made.

Seattle didn't trail after the opening minutes, going on a 17-2 run en route to a 47-27 halftime lead and cruising from there. The final score matched the Redhawks' biggest lead of the game.

Seattle, whose 43.5 rebounds per game ranked eighth in the country entering the game, pulled down 44 on Wednesday.
